Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club designed by Gachot Studios to open in Brooklyn
Of all the games that we could have foreseen sweeping through the Big Apple, shuffleboard would not have sprung to mind. But this month will see the opening of the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, the city's first venue devoted to the traditional, slow-moving sport in the hipster Brooklyn, no less. Located in a refurbished 17,000 sq ft warehouse not far from the Gowanus Canal, the club has gone the whole hog with ten fully-equipped shuffleboard courts ready for use.
A favourite pastime of Floridian retirees and cruise-ship vacationers because of its requirement for minimal exertion, shuffleboard's Brooklyn iteration comes with a suitably stylish makeover, courtesy of local design firm Gachot Studios.
